Birthday Run Maarssen

Start 18.50




Good run, perfect weather, beat my last 10k PR by 18 seconds, despite (or perhaps because of...) being a bit hemmed in on the narrower paths on the first circuit when the route was busier with the 5k runners.  Amongst whom were Kim and Seth, who I met totally by accident before the start! It was their first race and they weren't even sure they would make it - but they did - I looked up their time afterwards as I didn't meet them in the crowds at the end - I'm sO proud of them! I did find Rianne at the end.

Short and fast(ish)

Start 6.05
Didn't take my water belt (and camera) so took a photo of my newest shoes which had their first outing on Thursday.  Lidl's newest 'barefoot' model, really comfortable though I'm not keen on the black.

Carglass run

Start 10.18

Had to leave the car for a couple of hours to get a new windscreen fitted so started off 4k up the road and ran on from there, further upriver that way than I usually go.  Through Waddinxveen and Boskoop and then back via the edge of Reeuwijk.  With a detour through a caravan park.

Later and shorter than planned

Start 7.23
Didn't manage to get out of bed at first alarm and decided to do my long run later in the week instead.  Did get a decent 9k in with varying lengths of speedier bits.

Sunset + spotty horse

Start 19.53

dinsdag 5 augustus 2014

Plums, apples, brambles and mist

Start 5.27

 Have just done some calculating and have worked out that if I can get my average pace down to 6:12 min/p/k I could beat my PR from Rotterdam in 1997.  Doesn't seem totally  impossible as I ran 6:21 average in Sneek in June and some of that was over softer ground and there was some fiddling with lights went on after sunset.  Maybe Brussel in October - won't enter in advance as I'll have to see how I feel after the Singelloop Half at the end of September but it is billed as a fast and good city marathon.

8k with courgette

Start 20.42

Didn't actually take the courgette with me but forgot my camera - when I came home Jan-across-the-road had left one of his huge courgettes on the raft out the back so I got my camera and took a photo of that.
